    I cannot believe this shit! I read TW off topic about antenna this morning and I went to the store about an hour ago. I walk out of my truck and I see there is antenna. After walk out of the store about 30 minutes later and I notice somebody broke my antenna! Fuck those people! A screw still stuck inside and I will find a way to get them out. Oh man!
    Do you know how to get the screw out? I probably go to my dealership tomorrow and have them to take it out. It's sucks! I probably order shorter antenna or whatever.

    doesn't it have a hex neck where you could use a wrench to get it out?

    did it break off right at the base? if so, a screw extractor shoulf get it out alright.

    check out these guys http://www.antennax.com/ a nmber of members on her (myself included) have this antenna and love it. shorter than stock, and flexible. great reception too.

    good luck at the dealer, and sorry to here about the breakage

    Car wash ripped mine off, that was after I specifically asked the retard that worked there if it was safe. On yours a screw extractor looks like it will work. On mine it broke off way down inside. Now I have to replace the entire antenna pole inside the fender. Just ordered the parts tonight, actually.

    Oh man! It never happened to me in car wash. Well I always go to brushless car wash. Some car wash place come with brush, I hate it because it would scratch the paint and broke the antenna.

    That was the ONLY time my truck has ever been in any car wash other than my own driveway. I was up in NJ after that Dec 19 blizzard and the salt needed to go. I guess I traded the salt for an antenna, lol.
